Another rediscovery in automotive thrills.
16 January 1999 | by (Suffolk, Virginia) – See all my reviews

I'm trying to be fair on movies that haven't been discovered by many. Some have been very good while others were god-awful. And some have been unusual, yet politically incorrect by today's standards. These low-key "drive-in" movies of the 70s are worth the satisfaction today, if you seriously choose to accept them. Which makes DOUBLE NICKELS a prime example. It's your average everyday rip-off of GONE IN 60 SECONDS (its actor, George Cole, stars in this film), and while it isn't as smashing or thrilling, it still manages to deliver some fun. Nothing is more sacred than watching lunatic repo men steal autos just to run down the highway with a bunch of sleazy cops after them, of course. The comedy is okay even if the acting is low-class. One memorable scene that must be believed: a Pinto going down a narrow stairway with a cop car from behind! You won't find it different, but at least this was better than that dismal CAR CRASH, a "speedsploitationer" featuring Joey Travolta. This is good for members of the Grand Theft Auto Club.

Does anyone know the name "Smokey" appears in a few other classic car chase films that exist? That includes the Burt Reynolds masterpiece.
